Kid Montana, by Pete Morisi

Morisi is perhaps best known as PAM on Charlton's 'Thunderbolt' series in the sixties, which first came out in December 1965. He worked for Charlton since 1957, and contributed to many of the company's titles, like 'The Masked Raider', 'Gunmaster', 'Johnny Dynamite', 'Vengeance Squad' and 'Kid Montana'. Morisi wrote much of his own material. When much of the comic book industry came to its end in the 1950s, Morisi became a NYPD cop. He signed his subsequent comics work, mainoy for Charlton, with his initials, PAM to keep his NYPD supervisors from knowing about his comics work. He retired from the force in 1976 and did his final comics work for Charlton's horror titles in the 1980s.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
